X-Bomber Side-story - Rain Song 2015.07.31
Reading Vanessa's brilliant Star Fleet prequel; Rise of the Alliance got me writing my side-story to X-Bomber.
I've been thinking for a long time how to expand on what the game shows you.
I've puzzled for a long time what would be the best format for cut-scenes in the game. I wondered whether it would be best to sketch the characters, ships etc. then edit them in Photoshop and lastly manipulate them in the game's runtime.
So, what I have in-mind now is a shoot-em-up with a lot of heavily-illustrated narrative between missions.
